[tonight in allston] Chicago psych from Cave and Running at Great Scott


Permanent Records isn't only one of Chicago's most solid record shops -- it is also an independent label known for releasing excellent psych, experimental, garage, and punk albums. Tonight, two bands from their current/previous roster, RUNNING and CAVE, stop in Boston to play a stacked noisy psych-punk show at Great Scott with Brooklyn's People of the North (ft. members of Oneida) and Allston's New England Patriots.

Since their 2007 Permanent-pressed LP Hunt Like Devil/Jamz, Cave have carved out a space for themselves in the world of underground krautrock-inspired psychedelia with a fairly lengthy discography of LPs, tapes and 7-inches. Their most recent release is about a year old, Neverendless, their second out by Drag City. Below is one cut from that LP to get lost in, "On the Rise", a six-mintue long-burner of cyclical drums and angular guitars riffs, synth, organ, and minimal vocal chanting. 

Running are more abrasive and gritty; their vox are similarly inaudible, coating their words in reverb and feedback adding another level of noise to their layered, instrumental punk. Permanent released their self-titled EP in 2010.
